Re:Verse passage – James 2:1-13 (day two)
If, however, you are fulfilling the royal law according to the Scripture, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself,” you are doing well.
Favoritism, partiality, class distinction…if we are not careful our faith begins to look like keeping up with the Jones’. As I read this passage I was reminded of our call to care for each other. When we begin to create distinctions for who gets care we have lost sight of the gospel. Why is this such a difficult lesson for us to learn? We are called to help those in need. It is the need that should be the catalyst for our help, nothing else.
